The Philosophy degree from University of Liverpool is specifically designed to equip students with the competence and understanding needed to pursue philosophical research, while also acquiring skills that are valued by a broad range of employers. Teaching is focussed on two main seminar modules, Religion, Ethics and Practical Philosophy and Metaphysics, Language and Mind. In addition, students choose three elective modules from across philosophy and the School of the Arts.
All students write a dissertation—an extended piece of independent research conducted under the guidance of an academic expert. MA students are actively encouraged to participate in the research activities of the Department and to take advantage of our programme of world-renowned visiting speakers.
Our programmes aim to equip students with the general and widely applicable analytical, argumentative, and problem-solving skills valued by employers. By placing emphasis on the intersection between philosophical research and curatorial practice, this programme especially equips graduates for further academic research and an international career in the arts. While some of our postgraduate students have gone on to a career in academic Philosophy, other career destinations of our graduates include business, curating, cultural management, the media, the civil service and education.
